I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Easy, downtime to do other things, not much experience required, Lots of training offered.

Cons

Uniforms, Training can be oversimplified and a waste of time, not much creative thinking involved.

Advice to Management

Have the training not feel like it was made for monkeys, make it feel like you've really gained a set of knowledge in the field of study instead of a "Security for Dummies" book.

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Always have work.
    Low stress job if "bosses" aren't around.
    Meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    PAY. Just above minimum wage at a hospital?
    Lots of infighting and mini squabbles dealing with "rank".
    Clients don't understand what it is an s/o does.
    Some of those people you meet life's goal is to mess you over.
    Never expect to get trained properly for a site because there will always be something wrong with a report.
    This list can ho on for a while.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your everyday security officers. If not with pay then make sure there isn't any little Hitler supervisors micro-managing everything.
